A senior non-commissioned officer in the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) visited Brussels, The Hague and Geneva recently as part of her programme of study with Oxford University, one of the oldest and leading universities in the world.

Warrant Officer Class 1 (WOI) Bettlyn Chandra’s studies at the university in southeast England are in relation to security, peacekeeping and the European Union (EU).

During her visit to Geneva, WOI Chandra met Fiji’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Nazhat Shameem Khan.

Ambassador Khan said their discussions centred on her programme at Oxford University especially in relation to international security, peacekeeping and the European Union (EU).

“I understand she also visited our Brussels Mission and met Ambassador (Deo) Saran before attending her programme in Geneva at the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) and International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).”

Because WOI Chandra’s studies centred round the work of the United Nation (UN) and European Commission (EC), she said, they did not discuss Fiji, except in the context of being working mothers.

WOI Chandra’s  studies include a component on Brexit and the EU.
